KFC announced on Jan. 27 that it is releasing a Double Down Dog sandwich in the Philippines. The sandwich features a hot dog covered in cheese and fitted into a bun-size piece of fried chicken. The chain has no immediate plans to release the sandwich in U.S.
In May 2014, KFC brought back its fabled Double Down sandwich. Long the king of over-the-top fast food, this artery clogger consists of bacon, cheese and special sauce served between two pieces of fried chicken instead of a bun. Take a look at some of the other outrageous fast food items that have appeared on menus.
